The Pagani Zonda was created in 1999 and the Huayra coupe replaced it in 2012. Each of these models has evolved over time through a practice of continuous improvement of the composite materials and of weight balancing. Packages become available for upgrading to more recent standard the previously delivered cars.
Like the Koenigsegg, the Pagani are road cars. The Huayra reaches 370 Km/h at top speed. It is road legal in the United States, which was not the case of the Zonda. 100 Huayra were built, limited in the deal with Mercedes-Benz which supplied Pagani in that quantity with the custom hand made engine.
The new feature of the Huayra is its active aerodynamics handled by computer to ensure an impeccable stability. On the same principle as an airplane wing, independent flaps at the four corners automatically change the shape of the car according to its speed, acceleration, rotation and to the throttle position.
